Vigo, Spain Cruise Port

Part of the lush province of Pontevedra, the port of Vigo has a long and storied history as a fishing port which means that its township has a wonderful atmosphere of cultural importance, as well as a strong maritime theme within its architecture. One of the finest natural ports in the world, Vigo is home to beautiful modern marinas, but also major historical buildings.

This intoxicating blend of history and style means that Vigo is a fantastic place to visit. Ringed by mountains, and featuring a stunning coastline of rocky outcrops and expansive beaches, the city centre of Vigo is also a sight to behold. Wide tree-lined avenues weave their way through historical districts and suburbs, while gorgeous red roofed buildings featuring detailed stone masonry frame narrow cobbled streets.

The conscientious urban development of Vigo means the townships more modern features- the exciting clubs, bars and restaurants that make up its nightlife- never intrude into the rustic atmosphere of these amazing sights and attractions. Taking a stroll through the streets of this quaint township will enchant even the most experience cruiser.

Sightseeing in Vigo

Cidade Vella

This historic quarter is crammed full of amazing architecture and attractions for the cruiser willing to explore. Based around the old maritime hub of O Berbes, this intriguing district is a network of inter-connecting narrow streets that contain emblazoned houses, fishing streets and a series of wonderful, spacious plazas. Various arcades are scattered throughout these squares, featuring local street vendors and sleepy cafes. In this relatively small area are the Collegiate Church of Santa Maria and the Procathedral of Vigo-Tui. The neoclassical style of the architecture makes this beautiful district a must visit.

The Municipal Park of Castrelos

This gorgeous park was once the estate of the Quinones de Leon country house. Lush neo-classical gardens, and trees which are centuries old fill the grounds, but the natural beauty of the park isn't its only attraction. The municipal park also contains a fascinating collection of artistic and historical pieces, including Roman steeles, furniture and statuary, as well as a comprehensive art galleries featuring the work of baroque masters and classical painters.

The Vigo Estuary

This crystal clear stretch of water is the lifeblood of Vigo. A trade and leisure route which has been at the heart of the region for centuries, the estuary winds through the historic quarters of the city of Vigo itself, but also acts as a gateway to the coastal towns of Cangas and Moana, the National Park of the Atlantic Islands, and to the beaches of Nigran. Sheer cliffs and dunes, hundreds of sea birds, and even historic country houses can be spotted along this legendary route.

Shopping in Vigo  

For luxury brand name shopping with an alternative flavour, make sure to head to the Vigo University Shopping Centre. Located on the central campus, this sprawling complex features unique book shops and vintage clothing outlets, all within a stone's throw of the hallowed architecture of the university buildings. For a grand experience, head to the Centro Comercial Plaza Eliptica, which with its huge amount of leisure, catering, and fashion boutiques, could take a day to explore fully.

Eating out in Vigo

An imaginative menu awaits travellers at Ruxe Ruxe, which serves Spanish and Mexican food scattered amongst local seafood delicacies, while Las Barricas Vigo offers exquisite tapas dishes in the thrilling setting of a downtown bar.
